VCI Papers and Films

NEUTECH Packaging Systems proudly offers VCI solutions from Daubert Cromwell.

If you package metal parts for your business, NEUTECH Packaging System has a full line of packaging embedded with Volatile Corrosion Inhibitors. Corrosion inhibitor compounds vaporize and attach to the metal part, protect the packaged part with a molecular layer, and then harmlessly dissipate upon unpacking, leaving the metal part clean, corrosion-free and ready to use.


How VCI Works

Corrosion inhibitor compounds vaporize from the paper or film. They are attracted to the charged surface of the metal by virtue of their polar orientation.

The VCI molecules align on the surface of the metal to a depth of 3 to 5 molecules. This layer of molecules passivates the charged surface and creates a barrier that prevents oxidation. The corrosion cell (the flow of electrons in the metal and the flow of ions in the electrolytic surface layer) is unable to establish itself. Corrosion is halted.

Airtight packing is not required!

Simply store or ship metal parts in VCI packaging. When the parts are unwrapped, the protective layer immediately begins to dissipate. The metal parts are clean, corrosion-free and ready to use. No washing, dipping or cleaning is necessary.

 

 

The VCI molecules migrate into recesses and hard to reach areas on even the most complex shapes. The molecules build up on the metal surface until a continuous barrier has formed on the metal part.  VCI products from NEUTECH Packaging Systems will prevent moisture, salt, dirt, oxygen, and other corrosion causing materials from depositing directly on the metal and causing rust and corrosion.

 


VCI Paper

Daubert Cromwell papers from NEUTECH Packaging Systems come in a variety of grades. Larger or irregular shaped products should be protected with heavier grades of paper, while smaller parts can use lighter basis weights. Several products feature special substrates that combine corrosion protection with barrier packaging. Barrier coated papers and films protect against moisture and grease; laminated grades afford heavy duty protection against the environment.
Paper as a packaging material has it own unique advantages:

  • Easy to use
  • Good tensile strength
  • Scratch and abrasion resistant
  • Ideal for work layout
  • High-heat resistance, rigidity
  • Sets up VCI protection quickly



Daubert Cromwell papers from NEUTECH Packaging Systems are available in standard 36" or 48" rolls, and widths up to 120". Papers can be converted into bags, envelopes, wrappers for individual parts, shrouds for large pieces or stacks of parts, covers and liners.

NEUTECH Packaging Systems can provide several weights of kraft, plain or barrier coated papers to protect against moisture and grease. Laminated grades are available with polyethylene for heavy duty protection against the environment as well.

NEUTECH Packaging Systems can also custom-print paper with your logo for easy brand identification to your customers. Your logo, instructions, or message appears in crisp, clear detail.
 


 

VCI Film

VCI film products from NEUTECH Packaging Systems provide proven corrosion protection. Through volatilization and contact, the nitrite-free VCI chemicals protect metal parts against the corrosive effects of moisture, salt and other contaminants while they are in process, storage or transit.
Polyethylene film has its own unique properties as a packaging material:

  • Heat sealable
  • Strong, stretchable
  • Economical
  • Great flexibility
  • Highly water resistant
  • Can be applied automatically and removed quickly



The corrosion inhibitors are extruded right into the polyethylene film, not superficially applied. As a result, the volatile and contact inhibitors provide long-term corrosion protection for the most intricate and hard-to-reach surfaces. The corrosion protection is clean, non-discernible, with no strong chemical odor.

Clear Pak film is transparent for easy inspection and identification of parts. It will not affect the performance of the protected metal, and the parts are ready to use immediately after removal from the packaging without additional cleaning.
